Homepage

We are a registered charity working across Lancashire and our aim is to support Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and/or Trans (LGBT) people to be happier, healthier and well connected.

We are the only pan-Lancashire organisation specifically for LGB&T people and their families and last year we reached over 1400 people with ages ranging from 19- 65+. 

The work we do is community-led, responsive to, and based on, evidence of need: We have a strong, well informed understanding of the needs of LGB&T people in Lancashire and the activities included in our programme of outreach and support are informed by regular community consultation.

We support LGB&T people and empower them to make informed choices as well as to develop peer support opportunities. For example, people who we have given long-term support to are developed to then become peer mentors/befrienders to other community members – this has proved very fruitful for parents of trans children and young people supporting other parents as well as trans adults at the early stages of gender transition.

We also know that people who attend our activities forge long term friendship networks – for example attendees of our trans residential weekend have reported that they are still in contact with people they met there 2 years later.

We know that the work that we do makes a difference – not just to our beneficiaries, but to mainstream service provision. We regularly share what we know about the needs of local LGB&T people with service providers through attending forums, consultations or as members of local strategy or oversight groups.

We also share our learning through LGB&T awareness training which we are regularly asked to deliver across a range of sectors which improves understanding of the needs of LGB&T people and reduces barriers to accessing services.
